Never had any problem playing any games. Ram is dirt cheap nowadays, unless you are using DDR1 or SDRAM.

For me, Windows 7 loads and closes much faster than XP.

Sometimes XP feels like it takes forever to start up.

The graphic quality is not better than XP. But the new user interface is much superior to that of XP, in terms of look and feel. Whenever I have to work with older OSes now, I always miss 7's Start's "Search programs and files".
